About The Milan Job:
When Captain Alexandria de Sade learned the truth about the company she had been so proud to work for, she refused the promotion they offered, quit her position, and disappeared. As did Chrono-ship #25. She made it her mission to undercut the monopoly Naviwerks had on temporal retrieval of artifacts and heirlooms and put together a crew of likeminded individuals. Including one Laurence Kane.
Disliked by the Horotechnology professors at university for his unconventional approach to chrono-engineering, considered unemployable by Naviwerks, and unable to maintain even the simplest of jobs, Captain Alex considered him the perfect candidate to run and maintain her chronoengine.
He joins the rest of her crew: Historian – Nigel Wellington, Ship's Doctor – Dr. Hennessey, Security – Geri Reynolds, and Pilot – Angel Flynn. Together, they set out to give Naviwerks some real competition. Their first job: Retrieve the working model of Leonardo da Vinci's Gran Cavallo from Milan, Italy 1490.
But on the maiden voyage of the ship now named The William's Hunt, the ragtag crew of pirates will learn that what they thought was a simple case of corporate overreach is far more nefarious. They'll have to stay one step ahead of Naviwerks, its best operative Agent Nash, and remake their goals on the fly.
Meet Captain Alexandria de Sade, the proud and once loyal captain of Naviwerks chrono-ship #25. When she learned the truth about how the company was fleecing their customers she turned her back on the promotion they offered her, left the man she loved without a word, and disappeared with her ship.
With a plan in mind to undermine Naviwerks’ business of artifact and heirloom retrieval, Captain Alex hired on several like-minded misfits to crew her chrono-ship which she re-christened The William’s Hunt. They are: An awkward but genius Horotech, an irascible ex-marine, a flamboyant playboy, a churlish physician, and a hot-shot pilot.
Their first venture: go to Milan, Italy 1490 and retrieve the working model of Leonardo da Vinci’s Gran Cavallo before Naviwerks does. What should have been a simple snatch and run mission for the newly formed band of pirates goes south nearly immediately. In their struggle to recover, they learn that there is much more behind Naviwerks’ actions. Captain Alex and the crew of The William’s Hunt are the only ones that stand a chance of putting things right,and it seems as if her crew’s every step takes them deeper and deeper into discovering just how nefarious Naviwerks truly is.
According to her mother, Krista has lived in her own imagination since birth. The real world let her down. It was, frankly, boring beyond belief. After she discovered fantasy novels and comics there was no going back. This didn’t win her any popularity contests (or dates) until after high school. Art school introduced her to other geeks and the wonderful world of AD&D. A love for RP eventually led to LARP (the goth/vampire era of her life). Finally, sci-fi/fantasy/fandom conventions introduced her to the beautiful world of Steampunk. Music. Clothing. And books. She dove into the books she took a shine to and absorbed them. But something was missing. She wasn’t satisfied. During her recovery from neck surgery something she’d heard somewhere stuck out in her mind: “If you can’t find the stories you want to read then write them yourself.” On a couch in Savannah, GA. with Sons of Anarchy playing in the background, The William’s Hunt began.
Currently, Krista lives in her home town in Pennsylvania with five cats, a husband, and a weiner dog, Pete, who watches from the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
